track/wrong track is going up at just the right time for president obama. >> right. in places like ohio, the economy's been better than it has been, at least across the country, on average. rich lawry has a smart column, a conservative columnist, piece in "politico" this morning where he talks about the effect that bill clinton's speech seems to have had on this race. that basically he did a better job than anyone else at saying any of the problems that are still out there, you can't dump them all on president obama. and lawry argues that that was an effective argument. it seems like since then the numbers have changed appreciably. and i think they're more linked to the convention than they are to the data ratner's talking about. there's no doubt everything he's pointed to is real, but i think politics and perception is often shaped by these big events and sort of how you feel emotionally, and that's what's getting picked up. >> all right. jim vandehei, packer fan, you can't get that win back, but we got the refs back. >> i'm still hoping we get that win back. >>> coming up next, a litt
. >> if these are the facts -- and they are -- where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. >> reporter: president obama told the u.n. this week he thinks there is a way to avoid military action. >> america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy. we believe that there is still time and space to do so. >> reporter: but netanyahu sees a much shorter deadline for military strike. >> the big question is what point can we no longer prevent iran from getting a bomb? that is why with a red pen he drew that line he was showing the world the point which we may not -- may no longer be able to stop them from get a weapon. >> the president was 360 miles away heading back to washington from a campaign rally in virginia beach. the white house said too busy to meet with israel's prime minister. the relationship has been tense, even frosty, an issue that mitt romney tried to exploit. >> president obama has thrown israel under the bus. >> reporter: the white house feels it is more in tune with voters. >> i executed on my foreign policy and one that the american people largely agree w
, those are issues he was ahead of obama until recently, and was ahead of obama with female voters until recently. the reason you're seeing that ad right now, the biggest and most troubling change in the polling in the last two weeks has been the shift in the right track/wrong track numbers and concurrently the shift of obama being given the edge over romney on those issues where the only place romney had a lead. they are, you know -- obviously don't want to talk about the issues that are toxic with female voters but must win back some of the suburban female votes on economics, deficit, stuff like that. they see that as an imperative and that's why that ad is out there. >> i don't think you say to your baby to, welcome to america. the first of the ad is so bizarre. hi, honey, welcome to our family. >> welcome to a baby -- welcome to america, baby, you're teething and have $50,000 in debt. after the break while the white house tweaks its analysis of the u.s. consulate in libya the romney ticket plans a pivot to hammer on foreign policy, something paul ryan is already focusing on. >> we're
have been showing a tight race with president obama around 49, 50%, mitt romney in the mid 40s or so, so mitt romney is within striking distance right now but there's no doubt that 47% comment did hurt him. >> chris cizilla, a decision today in pennsylvania, a legal decision. >> yep. >> which could have a big impact because if pennsylvania ever were going to be in play, now it will not according to what the republican hopes had been. this was the voter i.d. law and struck down by a judge, said there's no way to get voter i.d.s to so many people in time for election day. >> right. this was always i think because as you point out, a narrow timeline, five weeks to the day from the election, but what this does is it does not put that strict voter i.d. law in place for pennsylvania. and i think barring some change or data i've not seen, i'm not convinced pennsylvania was in play even if law had been upheld. i just don't think the votes add up for republicans in pennsylvania. i always say it's like charlie brown, lucy and the football. every time charlie brown tries to kick the football, l
against obama that romney can get away with saying things on things like immigration and abortion rights he couldn't possibly have gotten away with when he was running in the primaries, which is what dug him this big hole. i'm predicting a move to the center because he's all over the map right now and he's got to be some place in this debate. >> harwood? >> i agree in part and disagree in part with gene. i don't think this is a contrived event. i think this is two guys on stage. >> yeah. >> in front of tens of millions of people. >> that sounds pretty contrived to me. >> what's contrived about it? they're making the case for the people picking the president. and they've got to show with authenticity and passion what they would do for the country. i think romney's biggest problem has been a lack of authenticity. people not being sure if he's saying what he believes and if he's really bringing the actual expertise he's got inside of him to bear in the campaign. and i think that's what he's got -- >> alex, how long are the debates? >> 90 minutes. >> 90 minutes, okay. i just think -- i think
candidate is trailing in the polls? well, you blame the pollsters. over the past several days right wing radio and television pundits have gone wild with the new republican talking thought, the polls are wrong. pay no attention to what you're seeing or what you're hearing, that obama is up. according to some on fox and elsewhere, the pollsters are all in the president aes back pocket and they can't be trusted, including fox's polls apparently. here is dick mars staggering even sean hannity on fox news this week. >> as he's at the moment in a very strong position. i believe if the election were held today, romney would win by four or five points. i believe he would carry florida, ohio, virginia. i believe he would carry nevada. i believe he would carry pennsylvania. >> oh, come on. >> pennsylvania, and i believe he would be competitive in michigan. people need to understand that the polling this year is the worst it's ever been because this is the first election where if i tell you who is going to vote, i can tell you how they're going to vote. the models these folks are using are vazy. t
